The idea of setting "Hamlet" in Kronberg Castle came from the Danish State Tourist Board

Cast: Laurence Olivier (Hamlet), Vivien Leigh (Ophelia), Anthony Quayle (Laertes, brother of Ophelia),
Alec Guinness (Osric) and others
Eleven years later (in 1948), Laurence Olivier filmed "Hamlet" without Vivien Leigh. Jean Simmons played Ophelia.
